DIRECTIONS

  • My microwave is 1150 watts. If yours is different you will need to adjust your cooking times.
  • Cover an 11 x 17 cookie sheet or jelly roll pan (needs to have sides), with parchment or wax paper and spray with cooking spray, set aside.
  • Combine the sugar and corn syrup and cook for 4 minutes on high.
  • Add the peanuts or nuts of your choice (if you like more nuts add another cup) and cook for 3 minutes on high.
  • Add the butter and vanilla and cook for 2 minutes on high.
  • Add the baking soda and stir well. the mixture will turn a lighter color at this point.
  • Pour immediately onto the prepared pan and spread out quickly.
  • Let set for 1 minute, then sprinkle the chocolate chips over the top.
  • Allow the chocolate to soften (approximately 5 - 10 minutes). Then spread out to cover the brittle. If you wish you made sprinkle chopped peanuts (or nut of your choice on top).
  • Let stand until chocolate is no longer sticky (usually about 2 hours). Then break into pieces.
  • Will keep will for weeks if stored in cool, dry place. If it lasts that long!
